I stepped out in faith 2 1/2 years ago and left my job (as an Alcohol and Drug Therapist) to follow my calling and live my passion as an Author, Spiritual Coach and Inspirational Speaker. It has been a journey of miracles, growth and a deepening trust in God as my Source.
I didn’t leave my job because I didn’t like working with alcoholics and drug addicts. God had prepared me for my life’s work by growing up with 2 alcoholic parents. My own healing and transformation enabled me to walk the journey with those in the throes of addiction and with family members affected by the disease.
Whenever people would ask me what kind of work I did, I would tell them I was an Alcohol and Drug Therapist. Most times, their faces dropped and they said, “Oh, that must be sooooooo hard.” I always smiled and said, “No, I love it.” It was an honor and privilege to help someone change their life and feel good about themselves.
I was invited back to the hospital where I worked to present Spirituality workshops for the employees and ran into a former client named James. He gave me a huge hug and shared that he had been sober for 10 years. He told me that it was his birthday on Sunday and seeing me was his birthday present. It touched my heart so deeply. As we departed, he turned and said, “I love you, Pat.” What a gift he gave to me.
I feel so fulfilled and blessed that God has allowed me to walk the journey with the people he brings into my life. I am blessed and my heart overflowis with joy. We never know how we touch others lives by our love and caring. I am so grateful that I had the courage to follow my heart and follow my passion. I am grateful for everything that has happened in my life for it has made me who I am today.
Whatever has happened to you in your life, God will heal you and use you to help others if you are willing. Are you willing to say YES to God and be God’s instrument in this world? Open your heart to receive more of God’s love and let God transform your life.
